Google nixed the fingerprint scanner on the Nexus 6

On one of the earliest rumor articles regarding the recently launched Google Nexus 6, a number of things were predicted that have been realized by Motorola (the maker of the phone, if you didn’t know) – this includes the gigantic 5.9-inch screen, the codename “Shamu” (the whale), the November release, and that it would come with what is now Android 5.0 Lollipop.

OnePlus ‘Two’ details, launch date leaked, sort of

There were a lot of surprising moves in the smartphone industry in 2014, with Motorola as exhibit A – launching not one, not two, but three flagship level phones.
